They are, however, surprisingly expensive to clean up properly. I was working on a project that was to use shipping containers and, at least the old ones, contain so much toxic paint and have been filled with so much toxic material, it often makes them almost unfeasible to use. But not always, as you can imagine. They ruled them out for a number of New Orleans reconstruction projects because, though they intially thought it would be an economical solution to housing reconstruction, they were very sore upon finding the actual cost to clean each one up (it was something ridiculous like five times the cost of each container). Anyway, just a little tidbit.
